History

 

Aubercy was founded in 1935 by André and Renée Aubercy at 34 rue Vivienne near the famous Bourse of Paris. Their vision was to offer a shoe of exceptional quality.

Their love and passion fueled the strength they needed to dedicate their whole lives to the art of traditional shoe making. A handmade shoe crafted in an artisanal family workshop with amazing leatherwork, but more importantly by providing a human dimension within the craft of the artisan, perpetuating the beauty of the handmade.

With the help and friendship of aesthete Arturo Lopez Willshaw, André Aubercy was able to meet the most renowned bootmaker in Europe. The unique Aubercy style was born, combining the sturdiness of English shoes, the intelligent craft of Italian influence while adding a touch of culture, audacity and the artistic sensibility of the French style.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tradition continued with Odette and Philippe Aubercy, followed by their son Xavier who strived to perpetuate the heritage of family values and provide great pleasure to the connoisseurs throughout the world.

The story continues to be written everyday throughout qualitative projects, with the creation of a workshop for special orders, a shoe repair atelier of the highest standing and a workshop for bespoke. These projects allow Aubercy to share the idea of a tailored luxury experience where all the needs and dreams can be accomplished.

As the last independent house in Paris, Aubercy was recognized as an “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant”, a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial know-how.
